obama to say it would be a profile and interference in ukraine's internal affairs for russia to know anything in the crimea is so hypocritical when you think that the united states and the eu leaders to lead germany had interfered over and over and over again into the internal affairs of the ukraine just because the west by using semi fascist and fascist forces in kiev to overthrow the elected government is now not does not now give the west the right to tell dr show that they have no rights in the crimea when by force of law which the treaty as the russians clearly have our rights and responsibilities in the crimea. especially since it was their naval base now it shows that the laws on the side of russia right now. international law. was this face and repeatedly backed the self appointed medicine can to ousted president yanukovich the matter of yesterday capital town and has voiced its concerns over the legitimacy of the ukraine government as it was brought upon by radical groups. he believes this cardi in charge of the country incapable of assaulting the sun resulting this crisis o

to violate ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity and its international commitments. >> i wiwhich is true under the buddha pest agreement of 1994 which we have talked about extensively. let's remember back then when the soviet union collapsed and all former soviet republics became independent states, they were important militarily. they had a whole arsenal that belonged to the soviet. they gave up voluntarily the nuclear arsenal and for that in return, the russians and the british and americans signed this agreement that guaranteed ukraine protection. it has given up its fiercest weapons. it needs to be protected. that was the deal. at the same time or in conjunction, the russians got to keep their base, their huge big black sea fleet there. there is treaty agreement in that regard. this was never in danger. there was never a moment when suddenly, these ukrainian authorities say, good-bye. we're not going to respect your sevastopol base. that remains there. under international law, the russians are scathe on very thin ice, if any ice at all. they are not meant to be invading a sou

to say what happened in ukraine was all a matter of american and or european indoor big international conspiratorial auction. in fact it was very much a protest movement which came from below. his memory as you quite rightly say where very frustrated with the european union and also very frustrated united states they tended to think that the americans and europeans were not only possible in some sense. encouraging other passivity in their weakness the acceleration of oppression inside inside ukraine. so the band and as you know they rallied the us and european union only at the very last minute when you're between ukrainian regime is already killing its people. very large numbers that said what's happening now is no longer just about the fate of a recluse in ukraine. it's about international principles like this but the recognition of sovereignty of like the rule of law international law generally. eros the particular commitments that are very important year for example russia along with the uk united states applies itself to recognize ukraine's territorial sovereignty when ukraine gi
in the midterm? >>> putin's ruble is rocked in the markets after the russian aggression in the ukraine. if international diplomacy won't work, will putin's love of money make him reconsider a border war? this is "way too early." good morning. great to have you with me. i'm thomas roberts. is tuesday, march 4th. welcome to "way too early." the show that wants to lead with rob ford every day but is experimenting about with dlat gr -- delayed gratification until he works out the tie thing. no sign of agreement or easing over russian's invasion of crimea. putin is expected to speak at any moment now. in a first swing of reaction the u.s. has ended all military relations by the kremlin. estimate that 6,000 troops in the peninsula area and ballooned to 16,000 russian troops. for all intents and purposes they control that area. ukraine's navy in crimea sang together in defiance and crews were ordered to surrender or be stormed and claims that mosco
the international community in support of ukraine and to isolate russia for the actions its taken in ukraine and we're seeing strong condemnations from the g-7 countries, nato and the individual countries around the world and that pressure which is beginning to isolate russia's already having an impact. we've seen russian financial markets dropped 13% today, the riewgle hit an all eo time low. we in coordination with partners pulled out of preparatory meetings for the next g-8 meeting supposed to take place in sochi of all places and clearly is going to have a showing impact on the trade and commercial relations russia wants with the west and the united states. so a cost is already being exacted and the president's made it clear that if russia continues on this path, there will be additional costs. >> woodruff: is that in effect saying the u.s. is prepared to let the russians stay in crimea given the historic ties? >> there's a clear choice and path -- the russians can continue to pursue the course they're on and face growing and increasing isolation and pressure or it's actually very straightforwa
